Product Review: Cavemen Gluten-Free Cookies

by Amie on May 20, 2010

I recently received a tasty package from Cavemen Cookies, which the company sent me to sample.  These chewy treats are gluten-free, dairy-free and 100% natural made from nuts, honey and berries.

Cavemen cookies are based on the principles of the Paleolithic Diet (aka the Caveman Diet), which is based on eliminating our modern-day processed foods and replacing them with all-natural foods that early humans could have gathered and hunted.  There is no added sugar, no artificial ingredients, high-protein  and just 65-70 calories each.

Not bad for eating like a caveman…

The cookies come in two varieties:

Cavemen Cookies

Made with honey, almond flour, walnuts, raisins, ginger, nutmeg and cinnamon.

Tropical Cavemen Cookies

Made with almond flour, honey, unsulfured coconut, macadamia nuts and ginger.

My clients and their children enjoyed these tasty cookies, which were surprisingly chewy and soft.  They preferred the Tropical flavor as they are fans of macadamia nuts.  These cookies were mild, yet had a hint of ‘tropical’ flavor.  My clients and I enjoyed sampling these cookies and many of their children who are gluten-free and dairy-free thought these cookies were “pretty good.”

My clients and I enjoyed the fact that these treats are made with natural, simple ingredients.  The short and pure ingredient list was surely what kept the ‘moms’ interested.  They said, “It’s just like baking gluten-free or dairy-free cookies in your own kitchen, but tastes just as good as homemade”.

As you all know,I always prefer making homemade food and treats rather than opting for packaged goods such as these cookies, however, if you are in a pinch and need a quick go-to gluten-free and dairy-free dessert for your kids or yourself, taste a Cavemen Cookie and let me know what you think.

Enjoy!

My mom has had a terribly upset stomach (maybe a gluten prob, not sure yet), I’ll have to steer her towards the ginger ones… I mean NO ONE should have to give up cookies!

I bought a bag of the original flavor, and they’re really good!! I keep them in the office, and they’re particularly delicious with morning coffee. The high-protein factor is especially nice if you had to run out the door without breakfast.
